That cap is not available from Yamaha.
Fill the hole in the cap with epoxy and reinstall the cap once it dries.

Yeah, if you were meaning to drill the plug to get to the pilot mixture screw, you drilled the wrong plug. The one you drilled is meant to be permanent and they're not available from Yamaha or anyone else that I know of. Do what Patrick said and carefully epoxy it back in there. Be careful not to slop too much epoxy in there so it doesn't seep into the fuel passage. If you clog the fuel passage with epoxy you might as well start looking for a new set of carbs. The plug for the pilot mixture screw is the other brass plug with the small hole in the center of it that's closest to the engine side of the carbs. Good luck!
